When I started this blog in 2009, all my kids were teens and I had just discovered that two of my boys were using heroin.  So much has happened since then and the story is contained in these posts

I started this site to voice my own struggles and, primarily, to let other parents of addicts know that they are not alone. There is a vast community of parents & siblings of addicts here on the blogs. If you’re new here, please reach out. Let me know how I can help and if you need assistance getting connected. It is both a blessing (we need community) and a curse (addiction is so common) that we are here together. Let’s keep our eyes on the blessing side as much as we can!

I don’t want my identity centered around being “the parent of an addict.”  I am also a fundraiser, writer, musician, creative spirit, a Christian, and just one mom talking.  Yet I will always be the mother of addicts as well. Please join me in this journey to healing and wholeness.  God bless.  ~Connie

  1. Wow, really heartening to find your blog. I like that you don’t only characterize yourself as a “parent of an addict”. I am beginning to learn that holding on to your own personal identity is very important. Anyway, thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Grace, Thanks for your comment! Yes, it’s very important to know yourself beyond the role addiction plays in your life. Addiction is a part of your life, but your life is not addiction! Thanks so much for the follow. If you ever need to chat, I’m available at onemomtalking@gmail.com.
